Rainbow Theme - Rainbow Fun w/ Food

Pin It




Rainbow Fruit Salad



We used the following:
strawberries
tangarine oranges
pineapple chunks
green grapes
bluberries
purple greapes
whipped cream - clouds


Froot Loop Fun

What You Need:
box of Froot Loops (or comparable) cereal
glue
cotton balls
white background paper
pipe cleaners

Activity #1 Froot Loops Rainbows


What To Do:

Prep: I used a large dinner plate to make an arch on the paper for a starting point


The Lil Divas then glued on the froot loops following the order of the rainbow. I did not make additional lines - I just told them to glue the next color right under the last & it worked very well!






Add cotton ball clouds for a cute finishing touch



Activity # 2 - Rainbow Bracelets


I gave each Lil Diva a white pipe cleaner and told them to add the froot loops in rainbow order
*be sure to measure for appropriate length around wrist & leave room to twist it closed!*


 
They loved their rainbow bracelets & of course they did not last very long due to nibbling! :)




Book:





Enjoy,
Bern
